Drake & Party & friends

I had a realization recently about how much I listen to drake and partynextdoor and how often I try not to put them on my monthly playlists (cause I feel like drake is on every single one) but then I thought why run from what I love. So, this is a playlist made almost entirelyContinue reading “Drake & Party & friends”

What I’m Reading

My brother gifted me We Are the One’s We Have Been Waiting For by Alice Walker a few years ago for Christmas and I’ve reread it 3 times already. It’s a book that continues to teach you lessons and gives you many “ah ha” moments no matter the amount of times you read it. DifferentContinue reading “What I’m Reading”

Writers Block

I haven’t wrote a decent poem in 2 years. That’s real writers block.

I’mContinue reading “Writers Block”
